“I had never seen theatre that centered itself on the issues of young Australians and our dynamic relationships with our peers. The modern-day vernacular reflected our generation; the play reflected the untold reality of my peers that I sat with - from a rural, low-socioeconomic, Indigenous background.”
- Audience Member
ATYP productions set a high standard and expectation of what youth theatre is and is on par with those of professional Theatre companies. By striving for excellence, our productions champion the talents, assumptions and stereotypes of what Australia’s youngest generations are capable of - whilst nurturing and producing the next wave of Australia’s theatrical talent.
Not only do we produce stellar shows but our young audiences are inspired by seeing people their age on stage and have a better chance of understanding and appreciating theatre when their lived experiences are reflected in an authentic and exciting way. In response to our Impact Evaluation Report, 85% of respondents were prompted to empathise with another person’s perspective by engaging with theatre and 82% are prompted to think about issues affecting young people today.
Delivering productions come at a significant cost and with our tickets priced to make sure anyone can come to the theatre, we do not make a profit.
A gift to support ATYP Productions will demonstrate your commitment to excellence in the performing arts whilst nurturing the productions that launch the next generation of Australia’s professional artists.
